They said they had a Negro with its heart born on the outside. It’s a crazy world. B: Someone oughta sell tickets. A: I’d buy one.

A: Twelve tables and no chairs? Chairs, you got a dinette set. No chairs, you got dick! I’d ask my wife, she got more sense . … uh huh, and if a frog had wings it wouldn’t bump it’s ass a-hopping. Look, I am sick of your excuses, Miles. It is now precisely 8:45 in the p.m. I will be down there in exactly 12 hours to kick me some butt … or my name ain’t Nathan Arizona!

A: When I was a boy, we ate frog. And when there was no frog, we ate crawdads. And when there was no crawdads to be found, we ate sand.
B: You ate what?
A: We ate sand.

A: I am not a customer. I’m a manhunter. Some say, part hound dog. But when some dink busts out of jail, skips bail … I’m the one they call.
B: What’s that got to do with me?
A: I hear you have a baby you can’t put your hand to. I can find him for you.
B: Look, I’ve got the state cops, federal Bee Eye out looking for my boy-
A: Cops won’t find your boy. Cop couldn’t find his butt if it had a bell on it. You wanna find an outlaw, you call an outlaw. You wanna find a Dunkin Donuts, call a cop.
B: First of all, get your goddamn feet off my furniture. Second, it’s widely known I’ve posted a $10,000 reward for the return of my boy. Now if you can find him, claim it. Short of that, what have we got to talk about?
A: Price. Fair price. It’s not what you say it is, it’s what the market will bear. Now there are people — and mind you, I know em — who will pay a lot more than $10,000 for a healthy baby. Why, as a pup, I myself fetched $40,000 on the black market. And them’s 1954 dollars. Now, for $50,000, I’ll find him … I’ll catch the ones that took him … and I’ll kick their asses. No extra charge.
B: And if I don’t pay?
A: I’ll find the boy, regardless. If you don’t pay … the market will.
B: Know what I think? I think you’re an evil man. I think this is a shakedown. I think it’s a screwjob. I think you took my boy. And my fine friend, I think you’re the one who’s gonna get his ass kicked. I think I’m on the phone to the cops right now —

Awful good cereal flakes, Ms. McDonnough.

Can I take a peek-a-loo?

Cop:Do you have any disgruntled employees? A:Well shit, they’re all disgruntled. I’m not running a daisy factory.

Cops won’t find your boy. You want to find an outlaw, you call an outlaw. You want to find a Dunkin’ Donuts, you call a cop.
